Why should I take this course?
Parents learn detailed insights into the impact of repatriation on young people and their whole family, with practical tools for both preparation and adjustment.
Care Providers learn detailed insights into the impact of repatriation on young people and their families, and will be equipped with practical tools to help families with both preparation and adjustment.
While this workshop is not aimed at Adult TCKs, it normalizes and validates repatriation difficulties, while providing language for a core experience that is often not talked about.
